|obadia / where does dust come from ep - autres_directions|
"this ep was recorded between april 1998 and december 2003 in Paris and Stockholm. what's presented here are traces and excerpts from a larger mass of recordings: seven sections which I decided to push toward something songlike. this release with autres directions provides a way to shed it, offering it the chance to be shed and spread, and to become something beyond my own thoughts." obadia (email@example.com ; www.clumsybeats.org)

|atone - un jour ep - autres_directions|
"the five tracks on this album were produced between january and february of 2003. in the first place, they were designed for live performances where i meant to have machines (sequencers, synths, drumboxes...), a keyboard and a melodica on stage so as to have a direct and sensitive hold on structures and melodies. but after a first gig where the conditions and context didn't allow me to get any good feedback, i decided to let them aside and go for a new form...

|tony / itinerance lp - autres_directions|
"A love break, forgetting oneself in the other & the emptiness generated by the absence of the lover. Leaving in order to find oneself again. This journey led me to several cities where i met people. Musical collaborations arised from those meetings, with one person at a time, as to unconsciously find a duality again. This (un)personnal work is the result of those meetings. Enjoy the trip." Tony Itinerance also exists as a DVDr with a video interpretation of each track made by the following art...

|various artists / the noise & the city 2lp - autres_directions|
"In the sound object I listen to, there is always more to be heard." ~ Pierre Schaeffer (1966) ~ "For a growing number of people, the major sound landscape is the sound of the city." ~ Robert Murray Schafer (1979) ~ The Noise And The City was born during the summer of 2003. The roots of the project are to be found in a fascination for urban zones, as places of concentrated architecture, population, exchange and life : exciting and creative spaces...

|depth affect / john cassettes ep - autres_directions|
Six months after the release of their first hard-wearing album and the many shows that followed, Depth Affect are back. On their brand new John Cassettes EP, you'll recall the spirit of Arche-Lymb when listening to the two outtakes (the sparkling Basic Illitch and the crunchy Crispy Breakfast) or to some tracks of Arche-Lymb which have been remixed by various artists. The incredible D_Rradio (Static Caravan, UK) turned the single Sarah Carbone into a delightful and childish track which now sweet...

|melodium / hum hum & bla bla ep - autres_directions|
Following his last and critically acclaimed album La Tete Qui Flotte, Melodium comes back with a brand new mp3 ep (under Creative Commons Licence) made of 5 new tracks & 3 remixes of tracks featured on La Tete Qui Flotte. The paternity of the tracks is unquestionable, as the melodies of this artist (now based in Angers - France) are easily identifiable and always reach emotionnal climaxes (tenderness, sweetness, sadness, grace...)...

|atone - un an plus tard ep - autres_directions|
Antoine Monzonis-Calvet aka Atone asserted his talent as a composer when he granted us with a cosmic and ethereal journey through his first album 'Un An', released in June 2006. A journey that he spent some time transforming into a real live project, together with the help of drummer Tanuki and of some videos - the latter being changing and of unusual formats -, so as to offer a surprising live show where macintosh and drums face each other (lit by the movies) and which was played in several ser...

"the musical piece which we propose was originally written after it was ordered by marc lavigne, who organized the festival "rencontres audiovisuelles" in lille - france. it was broadcast, along with a short minimalist film by arnaud boulogne, at the "aeronef" in lille during the festival on march 21st, 2003. we started working on the music before arnaud did. it was only after he had listened to the music that he started thinking about images for the film that would come with it...

|melodium - parthenay ep - autres_directions|
"this ep is a collection of past unreleased tracks partly made in 2001 & 2002. some elements are older, for example the melody on the first track was composed 5 years ago on my first keyboard. i chose to entitle it the parthenay ep, because parthenay is the small town where i come from and i like the way it sounds, a bit like an english word. i'm happy to collaborate with 'autres directions in music' because stephane is a nice guy with beautiful shoes and i like the fact that people can make the...

|depth affect - mesquin ep - autres_directions|
"depth affect is a project which was launched about two years and a half ago. our way of proceeding isn't original, it simply consists in exploring the different aspects of electronic hip hop music. the tracks on the "mesquin ep" come from a sixteen tracks demo entitled "mesquin eye". the distribution of these tracks on the web gave us the opportunity to avoid any kind of venal processes and to broadcast our titles on a relatively important scale." depth affect [firstname.lastname@example.org]

"this record is made of songs composed at home between january & october 2003 (except little whirl which is more old). all things except the bass on kashcut (which is played by emmanuel domingos) is played, sampled and programmed by myself. after the diffusion of two tracks on autres directions [www.autresdirections.net], stéphane asked me to be part of the adim project. conquered by the principle of the label (tracks and covers free to download...) and by the enthusiasm of its founder, here i ...

"propergol y colargol is the result of the meeting of two musicians who decided, in july 2002, to share and to confront their musical approaches. the album presented here was produced in brest (finistère - france) between 2002 and 2003. inspired by the atmospheres developed by stylus or sonic boom and admiring the compositions of organisation (kraftwerk's first band), we tried to create a music where the feeling of immersion would prevail...
